Smile Design FAQs

Smile Design for La Jolla, Del Mar, & Pacific Beach

Am I a candidate for a smile makeover?

Smile makeover candidates include anyone that wants to change or improve the appearance of their smile. If there is an aspect or area of your smile that you would like to enhance, contact us to schedule a consultation.

What will my smile makeover include?

That depends on your specific dental needs and goals. Our dentists will examine your teeth and inquire about your needs before recommending the plan of treatment. Your smile makeover could include any combination of the following:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Dental crowns and bridges

How much does a smile makeover cost?

Smile makeover cost is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the procedures selected. Dental insurance may cover certain procedures, such as fillings or crowns, for restorative purposes; generally, insurance does not cover purely cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

How long will my smile makeover take?

It is hard to say without knowing the specific treatment plan. We may choose to perform the selected treatments at the same appointment, or space them out over several appointments on different days. The more involved your smile makeover, the longer it will take. However, some smile makeovers can be completed in a single appointment.

How long will my smile makeover results last?

With the proper care and attention, your beautiful new smile should last for many years. Restorations like veneers and crowns are very strong and durable, and last a long time.

How long will the process take?

A smile makeover is a highly individualized treatment; it is composed of several procedures, arranged in a skillful combination with the intent to help you achieve your smile goals. The length of time necessary for a smile makeover will depend on the type of procedures included in your plan. Some treatments take place across more than one appointment, such as veneers. During your consultation with one of our experienced doctors, your dental needs and goals will be assessed, and procedures will be recommended to you. At that time, you will be given information regarding how much time you can expect to dedicate to your smile makeover.

What is the difference between getting veneers and having a smile makeover?

Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that is intended to significantly improve your dental appearance. They are custom-made shells made of porcelain that fit securely over the teeth to conceal imperfections, whiten your smile, and address misshapen teeth. They are an excellent way to enhance your smile. Veneers can be part of a smile makeover, which is a method of improving various aspects of your smile. A smile makeover may also involve several other procedures in addition to or instead of veneers, such as tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, and bridgework. If you are interested in veneers but need other work to feel confident in your smile, a smile makeover may be right for you.

Is a smile makeover painful?

The experts at La Jolla Family Smile Design understand that some patients may be fearful about going to the dentist, even for elective cosmetic procedures like smile makeovers. As such, a range of options are available to help patients experience a comfortable, pain-free dental visit.

What can I do to maintain my results?

After investing time and resources into your smile with a smile makeover, it is natural to want to maintain your beautiful results. If you do not already have a good dental hygiene routine, you will need to establish one to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Daily brushing and flossing are essential to preventing cavities and tooth loss. However, if your smile makeover includes veneers, you should avoid using abrasing or whitening toothpaste, as they could damage your veneers. Regular dental cleanings are also necessary to ensure optimal oral health for years to come. In addition, if you have bad oral habits, such as nail biting, misusing your teeth, or frequent snaking, consider breaking them as soon as possible. Make sure you are adhering to your LJFSD dentist’s recommendation and maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prolong your smile makeover results.

Can a smile makeover address crooked teeth?

Yes. A smile makeover can improve the look of crooked teeth. The exact method for correction will be determined by one of our skilled dentists.

Why should I choose LJFSD for my smile makeover?

Choosing the best dentist for your smile makeover is key to achieving the outcome you desire. An inexperienced provider may leave you with undesirable results, such as implant failure in cases where dental implants were included in a smile makeover. On the other hand, highly experienced dentists, such as the one at LJFSD, are dedicated professionals who consistently deliver outstanding patient care. Patient comfort, safety, and satisfaction are help at the forefront of our work and our doctors look forward to serving you.
